Denim Day is last Wednesday of the month
has third-highest enrollment with 12,954
Officials at the University are happy with
the third-week enrollment count that exceeded
expectations in light of higher admission standards
in effect for the first time this semester.
The 12,954 students is UND’s third-highest
“We are quite pleased with this third-week
enrollment, especially given the fact that consultants
told us we could have 500-600 fewer new freshmen
this fall as a result of raising our admissions
standards. Even with the new standards, we exceeded
our strategic planning goal of 1,850 new freshmen,”
said Robert Boyd, vice president for student
and outreach services. UND has 1,884 new freshmen
and 689 new transfer students.
And every indication is that this is academically
the best-prepared freshmen class that the University
of North Dakota has ever had. The incoming freshman
class has an overall ACT score of 23.4, compared
22.7 last year. “That says volumes about
what students think of UND — that we provide
a high-quality education at a great value,”
UND has more returning undergraduate students
than ever before. Although UND had large graduations
in the winter, spring and summer, nearly 8,000
undergraduate students (7,925) returned for
a 3 percent increase.
The number of North Dakota students (7,032)
is down slightly (-2.2 percent), but some of
that may be linked to those large graduations.
UND has seen growth in some key feeder states.
The number of students from Minnesota is 3,681,
up 178 (5.1 percent), almost identical to last
year’s Minnesota student increase of 177
Likewise, the University is showing strong growth
from its targeted feeder states, including Arizona
(36, up 80 percent), California (125, up 43.7
percent), Colorado (134, up 27.6 percent), Nevada
(24, up 50 percent), Oregon (44, up 7.3 percent),
Washington (171, up 20.4 percent), and Wyoming
(95, up 35.7 percent).
While the third-week tally is the official enrollment
number reported to the North Dakota University
System Office, it is not the last word on enrollment
at UND. The Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences
is also providing educational opportunities
for 240 students who don’t show up in
UND’s final enrollment snapshot. These
aviation students are part of UND’s partnerships
with other institutions of higher learning across
the United States.
The North Dakota University System has also
started producing a report that counts the total
number of students taking credit within a calendar
year. The first report, issued in January 2005,
showed UND with 15,192 students taking credit
in 2003-04. President Charles Kupchella has
predicted that the next report will also show
more than 15,000 students taking credit at UND
What doesn’t get counted, said Kupchella,
is an additional 10,500 people who participate
in workshops, conferences, and similar learning
opportunities through the Division of Continuing
Education. These people also aren’t included
in the official third-week count.
“So altogether, the University of North
Dakota will directly serve about 26,000 people
this year,” Kupchella said.
UND final third-week enrollments since President
Kupchella became UND’s 10th president:
2004: 13,187; 2003: 13,034; 2002: 12,423; 2001:
11,764; 2000: 11,031; 1999: 10,590.
Kupchella delivers “State of the University”
address Oct. 18

State of the University address Tuesday, Oct.
18, at 3:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom.
Everyone is welcome.
division awards $50,000 to faculty in arts,
humanities, social work
The Division of Research has awarded 15 grants
to faculty members in the arts, humanities and
social sciences — units on campus that
have less opportunity to vie for funding from
federal and other sources, said Vice President
for Research Peter Alfonso.
To support new initiatives in traditionally
underfunded disciplines, the Division of Research
made available $50,000 to be awarded on a competitive
basis to faculty in those areas. They received
21 proposals for a total of $192,094.54 and
made 15 awards for a total of $49,997.
Proposals were judged by a committee of faculty
members from departments in the arts, humanities,
and social sciences chaired by Barry Milavetz,
associate vice president for research, on the
basis of the significance of the project, the
quality of the work, the likelihood of the project
being completed, and the likely benefit to the
University. The committee consisted of Arthur
Jones, Jim Mochoruk, Katherine Norman, David
Perry, Paul Todhunter, Clifford Staples, and
The recipients and their departments are Virgil
Benoit (modern and classical languages and literatures),

ceremony honors those who donated bodies for
An interment service set for 1:30 p.m. Friday,
Sept. 23, in Grand Forks will honor the memory
of those who donated their bodies for the benefit
of medical education at the School of Medicine
and Health Sciences.
Family members and friends are invited to attend
the service at Memorial Park Cemetery, Gateway
Drive and Columbia Road, as the UND medical
school pays respect and recognizes those donors
who have resided throughout North Dakota and
“The interment service is a special time
to recognize and thank a group of men and women
who have made whole-body donations in a sincere
effort to impact positively our teaching program,”
said Edward Carlson, professor and chair of
anatomy and cell biology, “and to make
a profound difference in the lives of many young
aspiring physicians. The value of this gift
is immense and cannot be overstated.”
The medical school arranges for this ceremony
once every three years to inter the cremated
remains of donors who have chosen to be interred
in the UND medical school plot. Relatives of
the donors have been invited. Medical school
faculty, staff and students may also attend.
The service will be officiated by the Rev. Jerry
Bass of Wesley United Methodist Church and Fr.
Gerard Braun of St. Michael’s Catholic
Church, both of Grand Forks. The service is
open to the public. Please use the 10th Avenue
North entrance off Columbia Road; signs will
be posted designating the exact location.

Grand Forks Symphony opens “Season of Five Batons”
Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Chester Fritz Auditorium
is opening night for the 2005-2006 season of the Greater
Grand Forks Symphony. This year’s concert series
features five guest conductors, all finalists in the
symphony’s national search for a new music director.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets ($17/$12/$5)
are available from the Chester Fritz Box office at
The first guest conductor/finalist is Lawrence Golan,
director of orchestral studies, professor of conducting
and conductor of the Lamont Symphony Orchestra and
Opera Theatre at the University of Denver’s
Lamont School of Music. Golan is noted for his success
in bringing classical music to new audiences and founded
the Atlantic Chamber Orchestra for that purpose. He
has served as principal guest conductor of the Bolshoi
National Opera and Ballet
Theatre of Uzbekistan in Tashkent, and music director/conductor
of the Portland Ballet Orchestra.
Appearing with Mr. Golan, internationally acclaimed
pianist and recording artist Vladimir Viardo will
perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4. Viardo
was born in the Caucasus Mountains near the Black
Sea. He was first brought to international acclaim
in 1971 after winning the Gran Prix and Prix du Prince
Rainier in the Maguerite Long- Jacques Thibaud Competition
held in Paris. In 1973, he was the top prizewinner
of the Van Cliburn Competition where he also won a
special prize for Rachmaninoff and Contemporary Works.
Maestro Viardo has performed at the Lincoln and Kennedy
Centers, Carnegie Hall, Concertgebouw, and the Great
Hall of the Moscow Conservatory and has appeared as
a soloist with Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel, Sergio Comissiona,
among many others. Viardo is in high demand both as
a teacher and performer and will conduct a master
class at Hughes Fine Arts Center Friday, Sept. 20,
free and open to ticketholders of the Oct. 1 concert.
The third work on the program will be the North Dakota
premiere of a new work by contemporary composer J.
Mark Scearce titled “XL.” At its premiere,
John Lambert of Classical Voice of North Carolina
wrote “Scearce’s ‘XL’ is short,
compact and loaded with kaleidoscopic delights. It
bubbles and seethes with energy and is richly colored
and brilliantly scored. It raised the roof, as Scearce
had told his pre-concert audience it would do. It’s
a good piece to celebrate a new hall, a new beginning,
and a period of renewed growth for our orchestra,
our community and our nation … this piece needs
to be heard, again and again.”

series marks 100th anniversary of theory of relativity
The physics department will commemorate the 100th
anniversary of Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity
with a public lecture series Oct. 11 to Nov. 8. The
series is part of The World Year of Physics.
The series will introduce the special and general
theories of relativity in four public lectures at
100 Leonard Hall on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. They will be
presented by William Schwalm and Timothy Young, both
“One amazing thing about the Theory of Relativity,”
Schwalm said, “is that many parts of it are
accessible to a person with very little training.
To work out some of the interesting consequences requires
only a little bit of high school math.”
“Special Theory of Relativity,” the first
lecture set for Oct. 11, will discuss the strange
consequences of relativity of motion, simultaneity,
time dilation, and length contraction.
The second lecture, “Geometry of Space and Time,”
will be held Oct. 18 and will discuss four-dimensional
world, universal speed limit, E=mc2, twin paradox,
and how relativity preserves causality.
“General Relativity and Gravity,” the
third lecture scheduled for Nov. 1, will cover the
curvature of spacetime, aging in a gravitational field,
and gravitational lensing.
The final lecture, “Black Holes,” will
be held Nov. 8 and covers the creation and anatomy
of black holes, gravitational waves, cosmology and
the large-scale structure of space and time.
Each lecture will be followed by a session for individuals
interested in learning more technical details.

internship opportunities available
Each year, the president’s
office and the President’s Advisory Council
on Women (PAC-W) sponsor a set of professional
development programs for faculty and staff at
UND. These programs are designed to assist those
with an interest in university leadership to
broaden their perspectives on issues and policies
affecting decisions in higher education. These
programs are open to both men and women, though
special emphasis is placed on the importance
of developing women for professional leadership
roles within the University.
The administrative internship component of the
presidential leadership programs is designed
for faculty and staff interested in additional
administrative work. Each year, up to eight
participants (at least 50 percent women and
50 percent faculty) are matched with approved
internship projects and mentors across campus.
On average, interns will work six hours per
week on their projects and attend monthly meetings
to network with other interns. Each intern will
receive a stipend of $500 to $1,000, depending
on the length of the internship project. To
apply, call 777-4824 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
for an application. Completed applications are
due Friday, Sept. 29.
This year’s available internships and
mentors are as follows:
- #2005-01: NASULGC/World Bank Task Force
Mentor: Greg Weisenstein, vice president for
academic affairs and provost
Duration: two semesters
I have served for the last two years as chair
of the NASULGC/World Bank Task Force on Education.
The role of the task force is to create a
closer and more defined working relationship
between the World Bank and institutions of
higher education in the United States. At
the same time, the task force is charged with
supporting the goals of the World Bank, especially
as they intersect with the policy and interests
of tertiary education in the United States.
Efforts of the task force over the previous
two years have set the stage for a number
of events that will engage the Bank and NASULGC
member institutions. An example is the recently
conducted roundtable on innovations in higher
education financing. The administrative intern
will work with me in identifying and staging
collaborative events with the World Bank.
This will involve working directly with World
Bank officials and staff, as well as NASULGC
member institutions. It will also require
some travel to World Bank events. The benefits
of this internship include working with higher
education leadership, learning about the most
pressing issues facing higher education and
potential solutions, practicing diplomacy
at a relatively high level, and participating
in authorship of documents relating to best
practices in tertiary education.

Through Recreation” will aid hurricane
Students and staff in the recreation and leisure
services major are seeking donations of board
games, children’s books, coloring and
activity books, crayons and colored pencils,
Nerf balls, craft kits, and other family recreation
items. All will be sent to survivors of Hurricane
Katrina in the Gulf region.
Like most Grand Forks area residents, staff
members and some students know firsthand what
it is like to lose everything in flood waters.
Faculty member Patti Mahar recalls how terrible
it felt to not even have a book to read to her
5-year-old son following the flood of 1997.
“Most of us in Grand Forks can identify
with the hardships faced by the Katrina victims,
particularly the families with children. This
is one way we really touch their lives,”
The recreation and leisure students understand
the importance of family recreation to strengthening
families, particularly in times of crisis. They
hope that aiding family play will create a greater
sense of normalcy in otherwise disrupted lives.
Donations of used or new games and other family
recreation items may be dropped off at any Hugo’s
store in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. Donation
boxes will be located near the front of each
store. Used materials should be in good condition.
